Amount of time you play CO average - years.



Which is more worth it?

I've been playing co for over 5 years, i'd say it is a better investment to spend that money on DBs then to buy a game for a different system, play it for a day, and shelf it...

Just don't expect to get respect from buying a ****ton of DBs. Respect is earned, not bought. Gears can be bought and in some cases even skill can be bought, but respect can't be bought.
once your a bulker, everyone who don't buy dbs a hater, don't even give a chance to let the person earn their respect

Exclamation Bulking - Buying who cares

I agree with the point that if you spend some money on a game to get some benefit out of it when you are going to be playing for years like me (5+) it's not a big deal compared to what you would spend on a p2p game. However, the statement (in essence) that you should pay for something anyway, even though it is marketed as free is a fairly unintelligible thing in my opinion. If everyone playing wanted to pay for a game to play, they probably wouldn't be playing CO.

I digress; I personally have spent about $30 over 5 years in playing this game. What keeps me from spending any real money on this game is the fact that CO makes no effort what-so-ever to police the rampant botting/cheating that goes on in their game. They know it and they don't care as long as people keep buying DBs they are happy. So, yes I continue to play, I don't complain about buyers that is their choice. My only concern with it is the fact that they are supporting a company who doesn't care about their game or the players experience at all, only the cash.

yeah this is the only problem I have with bulkers. I honestly don't care if you think co is a good investment then go for it. It just seems that most bulkers have huge egos. (notice I said most, I have met a few really down to earth bulkers)

I've been saying this since a few months after I started playing. That was nearly 4 years ago. "I'll start buying dbs when they implement some decent code based cheat prevention measures." <-- Typed that exact same message in guild chat a few months after I started playing. It took them years to finally stop non dc speedhacking. Meanwhile people still use SV and other semi-private cheats/bots. It took a ****ing bot epidemic of people using cid (and then 5bot) to make them actually fix some of their sloppy coding.

If they actually cared they would change the key once in awhile (when was the last time? seriously). Changing it every maint. would prevent almost any proxy.. since cracking it takes awhile without a large amount of resources.

Baseball game is advertised as completely free to play, you think "great, i can enjoy this without having to spend a single penny".

You get to the seating, suddenly someone who has paid to get in, stands RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU. You cant see the game properly, because someone who paid gets an advantage compared to you, even though you have been told its a free game.

You find you either need to spend some money yourself in order to enjoy it, or the game is ruined by someone who paid for a free game.


MAYBE
would u still think that it's free when all the baseball fans r telling u it's not?

please quote me where i said i was self-conscious of people's opinions. don't worry, i'll wait.
i made this thread to know what a "bulker" is in everyone else's eyes. cause to me i thought it was some guy who spent a lot of money on conquer and not use the gear efficiently, thus needing it dearly. but apparently i'm wrong.

i'm not considered a bad fber, even go as far to say "good" fber, but still people said i was a bulker. so i began to revise my opinion of what 1 is. so i asked the forums, cause they're ALWAYS so helpful.

here's my fb vid xD: WATCH IT

as stated (somewhere) this is a p2w game (pay to win)

The way i see it and probably many other people, Wether playing CO atm or not, Is that buying 125 dbs (a bulk, I might be wrong im an idiot and its 1 am ) regardless if you bought it in small packs or one full bulk is basically being a bulker, Since youve still bought a whole bunch of dbs. Im like a half a bulker

I think it merely comes down to how you would define the term "bulker". For some people, it's just someone that buys bulks. For others, it's anyone with high level gear that kills you. Doesn't matter whether they know if they bought or not.

Pretty much everybody is a bulker now.

I remember when the 'bulkers' only spent 100 bucks or so to get good gear. Now that seems to be the norm. The CPs, the market thing, everything revolves around making you spend more money on the game to remain competitive.

To me a bulker is anybody that spends money on DBs just to gain an advantage over other players. Buying a few DBs here and there, whatever, your money.... but buying 500 bucks worth of DBs just to become 'instant' noobwonder is kind of a waste of money(at least to me).

That baseball analogy, I kind of like it. Free baseball game!

You enter, you get a seat. Then people pay to sit in front of you, pay to get a hot dog, pay for popcorn and a beer. Then they redo the stadium so that its open, no shade from the sun(while being in the middle of the desert) and of course no AC. The price for water or any other drink gets pumped way up. Parking prices get pumped up. You are then forced to be in the nosebleed seats and bino's are banned, unless of course you 'rent' a pair from them for 40 bucks.

Suddenly a free game turns into a nightmare, or you end up spending more than you would if you had gone to a regular baseball game and paid the price for the ticket. Conquer vs. WoW(and other games you pay to play)

What I love seeing all the douchebags that say 'all you that dont buy DBs need to STFU, us bulkers keep this game free to play!'.. wah wah cry me a river.

THAT is the 'ego' that I think quite a few speak of about the majority of bulkers. BTW I've spent about 75 bucks on this game in the 5-6 years that I've played this game. Nope, not playing at the moment either, but I may have to come back when the horsies come around, that should be funny to see.

anyways, bulkers suck(big donkey d.i.c.k., or camel dong I suppose would be the saying these days). the game will always cater to those that pay ****loads of money into it and those that use the 'free to play' thing will still get **** on.

Have a nice day.
